Two NSCN activists, one each from the NSCN (I-M) and ‘NSCN/GPRN’ were killed in separate factional-related violence in Kohima and Dimapur respectively on Monday.
An under secretary (finance) of the NSCN (I-M) identified as RV Sahrünü of Zhobumai village, Senapati district, was shot dead after he was reportedly abducted along with his car by the rival faction Monday at around 11.30 a.m near SKV petrol pump area, Kohima.
Police later recovered the body of Sahrünü from Leikhe road, Jotsoma, some few kilometers from the state capital at around 2 p.m.
According to police, the victim was blindfolded and shot thrice with a 9mm pistol. The military wing of the ‘NSCN/GPRN’ has in a press release staked claim to the killing of “Whiteson Poumai, under secretary (finance) NSCN (I-M) and apprehension of Dahri, youth vice president of Zupumi village.” However, the release said Dahri was later freed unharmed and unconditionally owing to “revolutionary ethics and humanitarian concern.”
Meanwhile, the NSCN (I-M) has condoled the death of RV Sahriinii and said in his death, the “Nation” had lost a future dynamic leader, the community a prospective youngster and the family a great son.
“His selfless sacrifice shall always be cherished and remembered,” stated a condolence message issued by the MIP/GPRN.
In a separate incident in Dimapur, police recovered the body of a revenue officer of ‘NSCN/GPRN’ identified as Hotovi Yeptho, son of late Vikito Yeptho of Akuba village, Zunheboto district, at ISBT area around 6 a.m. The victim who had both hands tied and blindfolded, bore a bullet wound on the head, police said. The body was later handed over to family members.
